Season 2, Episode 8,  Jul 26, 2018, 02:30 PM

This weeks episode of La Verdad Podcast we are joined by cultural worker and community leader Evaristo “Tito” Rodriguez. We talk about his life and work within the city of Chicago and the Puerto Rican community. His life in Puerto Rico and high school years at Roberto Clemente High School in Chicago which ignited his fire for activism and community work. Tito gives us a look into the historical years of the early 80’s within the community, the start of the “Bomba” music classes and eventually his creation of “AfriCaribe”. This interview will definitely give you a trip back in time as we discuss history that has shaped the Chicago Latino community as a whole.
